On This Day In Aviation History - 30 July 1992

A Lockheed L-1011 operating as TWA Flight 843 is written-off due to an intense fire after an aborted takeoff from John F. Kennedy International in New York.

After a thorough investigation of the incident, the NTSB attributes the cause to pilot error compounded by airline maintenance and training issues.
